Can I Get Nursing Care In-Home?
The advantages of in-home care for seniors or any other client who requires assistance moving through life, are numerous and some are self-evident. But what are the drawbacks? Surely, nothing is perfect. So are there limitations to in-home care? For example, can you get nursing care in-home?
In-home care is a great option for seniors and their families for a variety of reasons. For starters, instead of moving out of their homes and into an assisted care facility, they can stay put; no need to give up their homes. Beyond that, working one on one with a caregiver who comes to the client’s home (or even moves in with the client), allows the caregiver and the client to establish a rapport with one another. And the caregiver will have a bespoke plan of care tailored just to the client.
In-home care is also cheaper, on average, than a nursing home, according an annual report compiled by Genworth. So In-home care clearly has some significant advantages over nursing homes and assisted care facilities. But these facilities routinely have nurses on staff, and often there is always at least one nurse working at any given time. Do seniors have the same option with in-home care? Can you get home care nursing?
